GNU screen question?

hi, guys
i am very new to screen program, i would appreciate any help to get it running.
i am trying to user screen program with either telnet or ssh to run commands without disconnecting from my eth0
when i try "screen" command and /sbin/ifconfig eth0 down , i get disconnected from my session , i think when unsing screen i should stay connected .
i would love to know the procedures how to get it running and working, when i type screen it only creates .screen and i do not seen .screenrc .
by the way , i am using redhat 9.

thanks to everybody.

What exactly are you trying to use screen for?

For example I will use it if I need to keep a console based AIM client online somewhat like an answering machine for my messages if you will.

(start screen)
(start aim client)
hit ctrl + a
then d

and you're back to your original console with the aim client running on a screen session
